And so it is...

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness; it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair; we had everything before us, we had nothing before us."

--Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities 

This was one of the quotes that the minister at Seattle Unity Church used in her message on the first Sunday of the new year.

I was struck, sitting there in the pew, by the absolute wisdom of Charles Dickens.

He pretty much nailed New Age philosophy in the first paragraph of a book he wrote in 1859. 

Way to go Chuck.
